dc.description.abstractSubjects were run in an experiment in which they observed a model acting as the teacher in a learning situation, a role requiring the administration of apparently painful shocks to a learner. The subject himself later served as the teacher in a situation similar to the one he had observed. For half of the subjects, the model obeyed the experimenter's commands; in the other conditions, the model was disobedient. For both conditions of obedience, information regarding both the model's level of arousal and the subject's level of arousal also was manipulated. There also were three control groups which did not see a model. A main effect was found for the variable of obedience-disobedience as well as a two-way interaction between the model's arousal and the feedback about the subject's own level of arousal for a behavioral measure of aggression. Significant differences on the obedience variable and an interaction between the obedience of the model and feedback to the subject about his own arousal also were found for diastolic blood pressure, but not for heart rate and systolic blood pressure. An interpretation involving both social comparison and an integration process, or attribution, was offered to explain the results. In addition, it was hypothesized that diastolic and systolic blood pressure were sensitive to different underlying processes (i.e., they were dissociated).eng
